Lebanese flotilla on the way?

The Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center has an update on the status of the Lebanese flotilla, which may leave Tripoli for Gaza this week. Here are some highlights.
2. The current situation of the flotilla is as follows:
A. The ship called Maryam reached Tripoli and is currently participating in the routine processes required by law before a ship set sail. Rima Farah, ship spokesperson, said that contacts had been made with a number of countries to acquire authorization for the ship to be received at their harbors, because it cannot sail directly from Lebanon to the port of Gaza. Samar al-Hajj, coordinator for the organizing committee, is the director of the ship's logistic activities. Note: The ship will carry only women passengers (Al-Diyar website, July 21, 2010).

B. The ship called Nagi al-Ali (formerly Julia) is ready to set sail, and according to the organizers all that remains to be done is to load the cargo. Most of the passengers will apparently be correspondents.

C. The organizers may have another ship, but they are not divulging any information about it.
4. In our assessment, the ships were purchased and the flotilla organized with the involvement and support of Syria and Hezbollah, although both do not want to expose their roles and use organizations like the Free Palestine Movement as fronts for their activities.


6. Considering the stated positions of Qashlaq and some of those involved in the flotilla, and especially their close ties with Syria and Hezbollah, he apparently wants a violent confrontation between the passengers and the Israeli Air Force and Navy with a lot of media coverage. His intention is to defame Israel, even if his agenda is not necessarily that of the other passengers aboard the ships.

7. More proof that this flotilla, like that of the Mavi Marmara, is meant mainly to create a media circus and incite anti-Israeli propaganda, and not to bring humanitarian assistance to the Gaza Strip was made public by an Al-Jazeera TV investigative report.
8. The Al-Jazeera TV's Gaza Strip correspondent, revealed that the Gazans responsible for the ministry of health of the de facto Hamas administration were resentful because 70% of the medicines which arrived in the Gaza Strip from the aid convoys from various countries, especially Arab countries, could not be used. They were either unfit for use or their expiry dates had passed by months and sometimes years. They said that one of the convoys had brought dialysis machines which could not be used. The report was also quoted by a daily paper affiliated with the de facto Hamas administration (Al-Jazeera TV, July 20, 2010).
This information needs to be gotten out in advance so that everyone knows what's coming down. Otherwise, when something goes down like the Mavi Marmara, everyone will believe the mainstream media's parroting of 'Palestinian' propaganda and won't even wait to hear from the Israeli side.

Would it not be funny if in the middle of the night, while the ships were at sea, they were sunk?

Of course, the reason should be obvious..

Suicide Aid Boats...

Giant Jihadists Martyrs...

Israel could send a congratulations letter to the organizers on the successful mission sending however many to Allah...

If only the Stupid Jews would sink the vessels... or are they going to return them to Hezbollah once they've been captured?

Stay tuned.

Really good news to those who believe in Palestinian propaganda about Israel's brutal oppression of the Arabs. The IDF has its first Arab woman soldier:

First Female Arab Soldier In IDF Is Proud To Serve Israel

Good news and not the kind Nasrallah was dreaming to hear.

Again, if Israel announces in advance that all such ships will be confiscated permanently, it might dampen some of the anti-Semitic ardor.
